Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has directed ministries, sectors and localities to ensure stabile lives for immigrants while controlling the unplanned migration influx to the Central Highlands region.

He has asked the local authorities in northwestern and Central Highlands regions to actively carry out policies on healthcare, land allocation and education for immigrants. The local authorities were asked to immediately allocate land for 10,000 households who had no land to farm in Dak Lak, Dak Nong and Gia Lai provinces in 2014.

The provinces were also urged to give priority to implementing residential stabilisation projects in 2015 and the following years.

Deputy PM Phuc also requested localities in the northwestern and Central Highlands regions to review their land allocation planning and strictly ban the exchange of land use rights on the areas the State has given to the poor and ethnic minorities.-VNA
